Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:16:47 +0000Different cabinet positions need different skills. You want your Secretary of State, for instance, to have gravitas and political skill; that’s why presidents like to give this job to their former rivals. There are some cabinet positions where operational excellence is the primary qualification – Secretary of Defense comes to mind. Operational expertise can be found among people who run large organizations – CEOs, senior government officials, military generals… Generals are arguably the most overlooked among these; so it’s great that Trump nominated a general with a record of operational success, James “Mad Dog” Mattis, for this job. There is another job that requires such expertise, DHS Secretary. Being DHS Secretary means overseeing the border patrol, TSA, and various other large agencies that need operational expertise to run them. The Wall also needs to be built, a classic operational task since building a wall is mostly a matter of organizing men and materiel. So it’s good news that President-elect Trump is thinking of pairing up retired General John Kelly with Kris Kobach at DHS. While Kobach has little operational experience, he will bring creative thinking and great ideas to the Department. A skilled operator, like a military general, could make […]

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 19:08:21 +0000You ain’t seen nothin’ yet: If producers can find a way to microwave oil shales in the Green River Formation, which sprawls across Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, the nation’s recoverable reserves could soar and energy independence could become more than an election slogan. Even with existing methods — strip-mining the shale and then cooking it, or injecting steam to cook the rock underground (hydraulic fracturing is useless here) — the formation contains enough oil to last the U.S. 165 years at current rates of consumption. […] Producers would microwave oil shale formations with a beam as powerful as 500 household microwave ovens, cooking the kerogen and releasing the oil. It also would turn the water found naturally in the deposits to steam, which would help push the oil to the wellbore. “Once you remove the oil and water,” Kearl continues, “the rock basically becomes transparent” to the microwave beam, which can then penetrate outward farther and farther, up to about 80 feet from the wellbore. It doesn’t sound like much, but a single microwave-stimulated well, which would be drilled in formations on average nearly 1,000 feet thick, could pump about 800,000 barrels. Qmast plans to have its first systems deployed […]

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 17:05:14 +0000Quote: The Democratic negotiating position on all issues put before them while they are in the House and Senate minority for at least the next two years should be very simple: You will give us Merrick Garland or you may go die in a fire. Democrats, please, please follow this advice! Help us replace the following Democrat senators with Republicans, and engineer a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate in 2018: Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) Senator Angus King (I-ME) Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA)
